Re: Copyrighted music in Open Source Video posts?
> For your information I had one of the highest rated videos on the election 2004 part of this site. And it still can be found there as well as in this part of the archive. <
Congratulations, Darrell. I haven't kept such score with my own humble submissions.
>I am only offering advise to some of the video uploaders to keep them from fearing persecution from individuals like yourself.<
I'm not a persecutin' kind of guy. I reponded only to your posts about copyright.
>there are many videos that include news footage from CNN, FOX, Cbs, NBC, etc. CNN, Fox, NBC and others<
I forgot about those. Isn't the "fair use" status of those up in the air, due to the OUTFOXED documentary?
>Other footage found on this site has included Buck Rogers In the Twenty-Fifth Century, The A Team, The Fall Guy, Charlies Angels, Etc<
I have definitely not seen those. Maybe they slipped past the overworked archive staff?
>Unless you own a video camera and have staged every single shot in your video, used only the video graphic elements available in your computer to create every image in the film, you have basically broken a copyright law according to your way of thinking. <
I never said that. In above posts, I specifically addressed only the use of recorded music that is still owned by a record label.
>Why don't you ask Filmmaker Kevin Smith what he thinks about this discussion<
Even if I knew Kevin, I'm sure has other things to worry about. He plays in a bigger arena.
>So maybe your copyright law arguement holds little or no water here at the archive. <
That's for others to ultimately decide. I merely jumped in because the topic was interesting, but the adversarial tone this discussion has taken is surprising and unpleasant.
>Now that I have this out of the way, What are your videos and in what section of the archive are they located at. <
For convenience, a central listing of my clipfilms can be found here:
You will find them harmless, yet posessed of a certain odor.
